Posted on Thursday, December 22, 2011 2:00pm


A woman who was struck, and killed along with her dog on a Ventura street by a truck is now being identified.

It happened at around 6:30 yesterday morning, on Ventura Avenue near Shoshone Street.  Katie Reed, and her dog were headed across Ventura Avenue in a crosswalk when they were struck by the southbound utility truck vehicle.  Both the 65 year old woman, and her dog were pronounced dead at the scene.

Ventura Police say it doesn’t appear that alcohol, or drugs were involved.  The driver told police he didn’t see the woman, and her dog.  It was still dark at the time of the accident, and investigators think that was a factor in what occured.
